Kamakura to Koyasan

How can we travel from Kamakura to Koyasan using Japan Rail Pass?


Hi there,

You can travel around 96% of the way there using the JR Pass. However, the last part from Shin-Imamiya station - Koya-san is travelled on the Nankai express and not included in the JR Pass.

Full route looks like this.

Hope this helps,
